Take a day off – travel in the footsteps of the Vikings.
Take a day off – travel in the footsteps of the Vikings. The journey starts at Trondenes Historical Centre, where local history – emphasising the Viking and Medieval Ages – is told through original exhibits, multi-media show, specially composed music, sights and smells. The visit on the Trondenes peninsula is concluded on the culture trail where you will be able to see remnants of boathouses previously housing vessels of the chieftain Asbjørn Selsbane. Map of the trail is available in the souvenir shop at Trondenes Historical Centre.
The journey continues to Bjarkøy – in the kingdom of Tore Hund. Ole Ottesastua from 1870 is situated on top of a very large farmyard at Øvergård, and indications are that it may have been the home of Tore Hund himself. Open all year by contacting Sør-Troms Museum, where you will find map and further information about the culture trail on the Saga island.
